More that YOU can do ...

Avoid products that damage seagrasses: Many seagrasses in our region are developed to mass produce seafood such as prawns.

Dispose of rubbish properly. Marine debris smother and poison seagrasses and the animals that live there.

Don't discard fishing nets and fishing lines in the sea. These uproot seagrasses and kill animals that live there.

Protect our marine habitats. They are habitats for our seagrasses.

Be a responsible boater. Be careful when travelling near seagrass areas.

Be a responsible diver. Do not damage seagrass areas.

Be a responsible tourist. Visiting a shore with seagrasses? Support seagrass-friendly businesses there. Find out more about the seagrass habitats there and what you can do to help.
